Boeing has not yet decided whether to propose its F/A-18E/F Super Hornet aircraft for a potential $14.5 billion contract to replace Canada“™s fleet of CF-18 fighter planes, Flightglobal reported Tuesday.
The Chicago-based aerospace company said in a statement it will assess its participation in Canada“™s Future Fighter Capability Project once the Canadian government provides the acquisition approach, evaluation criteria and requirements for the program.
Canada“™s public services and procurement agency hosted an information session Monday to discuss FFCP and asked potential offerors to respond to an invitation for inclusion in a suppliers list by Feb. 9.
The Canadian Press also reported that Boeing did not attend the information session but U.S. and U.K. government officials as well as representatives from Lockheed Martin, Airbus, Saab and Dassault were in attendance during the event.
Canada plans to buy 88 new fighter planes through FFCP, the report added.
